The San Francisco and Marin Food Banks has been struggling to make ends meet this year as both food and financial donations have been dropping. The 8th Annual Supermarket Street Sweep, the charity bike race that I organize every holiday season, is happening again on Saturday, December 7. You can get information on how to participate at the event website. And check out my previous post on the Sweep’s history below.
